Social Loyalty has gained ground. ‘Social Badging’ is an entirely new thing for the clients’ programs. The people who participate in these programs receive ‘badges’ for attaining definite skills development and certificates to display on their social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Instagram, etc.
The Continued Learning and Enablement with Sales Incentives

Program Member Empowerment
These days, the B2B loyalty programs enable the customers to use their well-merited points in the form of assets and give them the freedom to invest these points into their business and employee.
More developments are observed in the gamification tactics to persuade e-learning, rejuvenate the participants and promote knowledge preservation.

With the advent of social loyalty and the importance of social media for loyalty programs, the customers have a lot of unstructured data like forum discussions, chat rooms, and the members’ reviews. This information can further help in managerial decision making.
